view wireless key on mac

Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I want to connect to my wireless network  but I don't have access to my router. I have one Mac laptop set up with the wireless key and want to retreive it from the mac and put it into my pc (laptop) so that I can access the internet. I have unfortunately never worked on a Mac before and do not know how to recover the wireless key.

The mac connects to the wireless network through a Wireless Airport network connection. How can I view the wireless network key (password)?

Thank you for your time.
